I just love this idea!
So every time a make a new tote bag I dress up one of my notebooks.
I stocked up on composition notebooks when I found them on sale for .50
Cut out the fabric, leaving it a little larger than the notebook and set aside.
Made another ruffle, using fabric that's twice the length of the note book.
Hem the ruffle around all the edges.
Sew the ruffle onto the brown fabric.
I used Mod Podge to attach the fabric, then went back and trimmed around the edges.
I also added some fray check around the edges
Cute, fast and easy!
And it matches my tote bag.
